Sporting KC practice at Livestrong Sporting Park


It wasn't the first time for Sporting Kansas City to practice on the field at Livestrong Sporting Park... but it was the first time that a Kansas City Star photographer was there to snap some pictures.

Under the scrutiny of a few assorted media members (sadly, not me, it's a work night), Peter Vermes ran his charges through a training session under the lights as Sporting prepares to open the $200 million park in less than 10 days.

Since I don't have much to add, here are the photos by The Star's excellent 'grapher David Eulitt.
